Chainsaw Man
Really grim themes, in both story in art. Profound and deeply flawed protagonists. A cynical insight at poverty and homelessnes. Just overall dark and moody atmospheres. Chainsaw Man and Homunculus are really solid works with just the right ratio of depth to action so, as I see it ,neither of them fall into the "pretencious" category or at the other extreme "brainless" category. While CSW defies the boundaries of shounen as a whole genre, Homunculus breaks the confines of what you'd find socially acceptable in a mainstream manga. Anyway if you like glum things in general go check these out.

Both series are about a "robot" like girl in an apocalyptic setting.

Both series are slice of life and have their own share of mysteries. There is also a fair bit of traveling in both series, so if you enjoy that aspect it's there too.

Both have some similar archetypes especially in the character taking care of the fantastical characters.

Kuragehime
The Wallflower and Princess Jellyfish are two manga aimed at women about an unconventionally attractive women with geeky obsessions. The female lead is fairly sheltered and definitely knows nothing (and probably doesn't care) about beauty... but with the help of a surprise new friend, that starts to change, little by little. These two manga are also fairly humorous with some honestly strange (haha) senses of humor.

Set of characters entering a place that stood out as something not from their realm, they venture out finding their goal, assuming that was placed at the depth filled with unknown. At the creeping deep there were filled with layers with their own respective ecosystem, and with their specified habitants, yes, filled with organisms; plants and creatures, that considered out of their world! How will they survive through those conditions? They adapt and eat what's available at their surroundings of course. Similarly, their cast of characters are interesting not only for their designs but in their attitude included. Well-made and detailed world-building in further aspect, which may seem convenient for our main characters and obstacles that they will face along the way.

They tick a lot of the same boxes. They revolve around a tragedy. They're both murder mysteries centered around the ability to time travel.

And they have meaningful dialogue and relationships that are as enjoyable as the plot.

Isekai Mokushiroku Mynoghra is about getting isekaid into a world that has game elements from the game the MC had previously played, very similar to Overlord's premise. The only difference is that the MC and follower(s) of Isekai Mokushiroku Mynoghra do not start off OP and need to level up over time, so the story is more focused on development. However in both stories the "protagonist" is on the evil/dark side, which makes the stories interesting, especially when given perspective from the human/justice factions.

The MC pursues his own dreams and objectives regardless of how many times people around him disagree. This is sort of an adventure with lots of ups and downs. *Beautiful how panels are stretched and not per se completely filled with text, meaning you're free to think what he'd do and think about in various situations.
